OUR STORY My Weekly Preview is a high-quality magazine delivering more of what matters to the Sunshine Coast. It features news, business, regular columnists, interesting facts and figures for that hot topic at the dinner table, motoring, socials, travel, health, lifestyles and more, as well as the most up-to-date information on local real estate. The magazine is 100% locally owned, which means we don’t just talk about being local, we are local, we live it every day. Delivered fresh every Friday. We’re also conscious of the environment at MWP – all our home delivered magazines are wrapped in biodegradable plastic.

don’t know why but I just can’t grow citrus trees on the Sunshine Coast. My mulberry bush is doing fine, my nectarine tree is bearing fruit, and it was not too long ago my coffee plant provided its first harvest of beans (which were so hard they nearly broke the grinder), but for the life of me I simply can’t produce a lemon, lime, orange or mandarin. If you are a frustrated gardener like me, this week’s cover story will help. The My Weekly Preview gardening guide gives you plenty of tips on how to make your garden great. This week you can also take a test drive in the next big thing in SUVs, fly to the Canary Islands for a holiday, and have a quick chat with a local Buddhist monk about kindness, compassion and the secret to Tibetan tea. In My Opinion, Sami tries to let go as a parent, while Nugget struggles to free himself from the end of the footy season. And in My Property Preview, we tell you why now is the right time to buy an apartment on the Sunshine Coast.

QUICK CHAT

DON’T WORRY, BE HAPPY

Geshe Phuntsok Tsultrim from Tibet is the resident teacher of Buddhist studies at Chenrezig Institute at Eudlo. FIRST JOB?

Leaving Tibet to join a monastery in India. Under the Chinese occupation of my country, it was not possible to study Buddhist philosophy to the extent I wanted to. I had to leave behind all those who were dear to me, knowing that it will take many years before I could see them again.

Discipline master at my monastery in India – Sera Je monastic university.

YOUR FAMILY INCLUDES. . . I have nine siblings. Two in the USA, one at the monastery in south India and the rest are in Tibet, my homeland. My mum lives at my hometown in eastern Tibet and I am dreaming of meeting her next year after more than 15 years of separation. I’m a monk and it means being celibate so that’s as far as it goes!

YOU ARE HAPPIEST WHEN? When I am surrounded by my books and also when I get to speak with my mother.

WHAT FRUSTRATES YOU THE MOST? Tibet has been under Chinese occupation and repression for more than 50 years now. The Chinese government has been deaf to His Holiness’s appeals for negotiation of a just and peaceful resolution of the Tibetan issue. I am still hopeful though, things can change, I am sure that truth and freedom will prevail at the end.

FIRST CAR? I can’t drive. I can’t even ride a bike!

FAVOURITE BOOK? I read mostly Buddhist philosophy. His Holiness the Dalai Lama’s books are great but my most favourite one has to be Lama Tsongkhapa’s Graduated Path to Enlightenment.

WHAT ARE YOU READING NOW? Shantideva’s A Guide to a Bodhisattva Way of Life. It’s an excellent manual to kind-heartedness.

FAVOURITE SONG? I usually don’t listen to music and if I do happen to listen to something it’s probably an old Tibetan song. My translator says Tibetan music is terrible…

HOW DO YOU DEAL WITH FRUSTRATION? FAVOURITE PLACE ON THE COAST? Chenrezig Institute. It’s quiet, beautiful, full of wildlife and has a community of like-minded people and is a good place for Buddhist monastics to be. I tend to balance the quiet life with occasional visits to the shops. . . which makes me appreciate living in the bush.

BEST DAY IN YOUR LIFE?

IF YOU COULD CHANGE ONE THING ON THE COAST WHAT WOULD IT BE?

The day I met His Holiness the Dalai Lama, the embodiment of compassion.

It’s nice as it is. Slightly turning the heat off during the summer could be a bonus.

HOW LONG HAVE YOU LIVED HERE?

IS THERE A DAY IN YOUR LIFE THAT TURNED OUT TO BE A TURNING POINT?

More than a year now.

Shantideva, an 8th century Buddhist master said: “If it can be remedied, why be unhappy? If it cannot be remedied, what is the use of being unhappy?”

ADVICE TO YOUR 18 YEAR-OLD SELF? Study hard, repay the kindness of your parents and your teachers and listen to the advice above!

TEA OR COFFEE? Tea, tea and more tea, preferably Tibetan tea. It is made of salt, tea, butter and milk. Making it takes time so I have one in the morning and normal tea for the rest of the day.

NRL OR AFL? I don’t watch any sport. What’s the difference between NRL and AFL?

COVER STORY

CAN YOU DIG IT?

Three well-known green thumbs share their advice for novice gardeners. Compiled by Richard O’Leary

“The glory of gardening: hands in the dirt, head in the sun, heart with nature. To nurture a garden is to feed not just on the body, but the soul” Alfred Austin

W

hat better time to get into gardening than spring? The weather is getting warmer, the flowers are blooming and the lawn is growing faster than you can cut it. The My Weekly Preview gardening guide promises to get you set for your best season ever, and you may even get some sustenance for your soul along the way – starting with some helpful hints from one of the Sunshine Coast’s best known garden experts Marjorie Van Roy.

THINGS TO DO Fertilise – in preparation for growth in the warmer months, or in return for good spring blooming, apply a good quality, slow release fertiliser to the garden. Make sure to water the area well before and after applying this. Choose your fertiliser carefully to achieve the correct result; some promote more flowers while others promote more green growth. Weed and mulch the garden – weeds are much easier to remove now before they start growing in summer. Once an area is free from weeds, apply a good quality mulch to the area. Popular choices include tea tree mulch, cypress mulch or cane mulch. Apply these between three centimetres and five 12 My Weekly Preview | October 9, 2015

centimetres deep. Lawns – aerate the entire lawn area to loosen thatch and prepare for new growth. Spray now for weeds including bindi and clover. Top dress any areas that need a lot of new growth such as high traffic areas or edges of paths. Fertilise the entire lawn using a lawn specific fertiliser to encourage strong new growth for summer. Dead head and prune – clean off any old spent winter/spring flowers. This will encourage new growth and new flowers. High flowering plants such as hibiscus, roses and bougainvillea can all be pruned hard now to encourage new growth and flowers. Annuals and perennials including petunias, daisies, bacopa and calibrachoa and geranium should be lightly trimmed to encourage new shoots. These plants will appreciate a liquid fertiliser as well

WHAT TO PLANT NOW Perennial flowers – plant these options for long lasting plants that produce an abundance of flowers throughout spring and summer: • Angelonia, calibrachoa, tibouchina, salvia, geranium, lobularia, alstromeria, perennial lobelia, portulacca, verbena and scaevola.

Vegies – sow seeds or seedlings for Christmas: • basil, beetroot, beans, capsicum, cherry tomatoes, chilli, cucumber, eggplant, lettuce, leeks, parsley, pumpkin, rocket, spring onions and zucchini. For more information go to manawee.com.au.

ENOUGH SPACE TO GROW

Marjorie Van Roy Annual flowers – plant these options for fast growing, free flowering plants for summer colour: • Petunia – huge range of coloured flowers. • Alyssum – fast growing ground cover that attracts beneficial insects. • Marigolds – great for the health of the soil as well as attracting pollinators – a great companion plant for the vegie patch. • Nasturtium – fast growing and producing lots of flowers which are also edible. • Dahlia – great as a cut flower as well as in the garden

Anne Gibson from Palmwoods, better known to the followers of her website as the micro gardener, says there no such thing as not enough space to start your own garden. Whether it’s in your backyard, on the balcony or in the kitchen, there’s always room to create your very own green sanctuary. Here she gives some tips on how to get a garden that not only looks great, but will help to feed your family as well.

10 STEPS TO AN EDIBLE GARDEN 1. Dream big but start small. Grab a cuppa, some paper, a pen and start your wish list. Gather any photos, notes, magazine pics and jot down your ideas. Give yourself permission to start small – with bite-sized projects. myweeklypreview.com.au

6/10/2015 1:25:15 PM


COVER STORY

Disorder and chemically grown commercial crops, but even our home grown edibles can suffer. Grow native plants, a variety of flower shapes and sizes, and herbs. 9. Use water wisely. Water is a precious resource. Collect your rainwater, install efficient irrigation systems and improve your soil so it holds more moisture. 10. Make tough decisions. Reflect on what is doing well in your garden – and grow more of it. Are other plants struggling? Compost them. For more information go to themicrogardener.com.

can try bringing outdoor plants inside. If they die, they die. And then you try again and you learn from it. People always associate it with big projects stuff. They sort of forget even if you have a small balcony scenario that you can garden on a very small scale.” What would your one tip to would be gardeners? “Have a go, don’t be afraid of it, it is a lot of fun. If you have kids it’s a fantastic way of teaching kids about where food comes from. The joy of growing, nurturing, caring and observing. They learn about seasons, where fruit comes from, they learn about what role birds and butterflies and bees and moths and flies have with plants. On a selfish, personal level it’s great for mental health. It’s a great way after a big week at the office to just de-stress a bit, connect with the outdoors. It’s not just about gardening, there’s a really big lifestyle side to the whole thing. What’s the secret to a great garden? I think the secret is one that you can actually utilise and enjoy. That can be as simple as having somewhere to sit out in the garden, maybe in the shade of a beautiful well established tree. It’s just the simple things about the garden. It could be the surprise of a plant coming into flower and it could be a very vibrant colour. It’s the changes, the changes as a garden grows throughout the season and throughout the year. Jim Fogarty will be a judge at this weekend’s Brisbane International Garden Show at Strathpine. Visit brisbanegardenshow.com.au.

2. Set realistic goals and make a plan. Pace yourself. Avoid taking on too much if you have limited time, money or energy. Keep your goals simple. Don’t wait for the perfect moment or situation to start growing your own food garden. 3. Look for ‘win-win’ solutions. Write down the problems you are having on a piece of paper – there are always solutions. Brainstorm some creative ideas – you may surprise yourself with the outcome. 4. Observe and ask questions. Make time daily to walk barefoot (a healthy habit called ‘grounding’ or Earthing). Not only does this practice have well researched health benefits, but you will also learn so much about your garden. 5. Build healthy soil. Once you get your soil right, you will find you have less maintenance, pest/ disease problems and healthier plants. You can start by adding organic matter and making quality compost. 6. Learn a new garden skill. Attend a course, read books, try DIY solutions. Consider learning how to save seeds, propagate new plants, make quality compost, start a worm farm or grow a new crop you haven’t tried before. 7. Go 100 per cent organic. If you have been compromising and still using synthetic or chemical ‘solutions’, consider swapping to organic alternatives. It may require a new mind and skill set, but your health will benefit. 8. Plant for pollinators. Not only are our precious honeybees in trouble due to Colony Collapse

Jim Fogarty

JUST GIVE IT A GO Jim Fogarty is one of Australia’s most respected landscape designers and here he shares his love of gardening with My Weekly Preview. What do you say to people who say they don’t have a green thumb? “I think even the most professional gardener will talk about failure. I think that’s about the love of gardening. I think it’s more about understanding that there’s no such thing as perfection and a lot of it is trial and error. That’s the love of it. There are no personal rules. You can try growing anything you want. You can prune any way you want to prune. You

“Give yourself permission to start small – with bite-sized projects”

There are five seasons in a subtropical Sunshine Coast garden? • Long summer: December to March • Short autumn: April to May • Short winter: June to July • Short spring: August to September • Spring/Summer: October to November

COMPOSTING TIPS • Ensure your compost bin is set up where it’s in direct sunlight. • Begin the bin with a layer of twigs or sticks at the bottom for proper aeration and drainage. • Feed your compost bin weekly with a balance of rapidly decomposting materials ‘greens’ or nitrogen-rich products, followed by a layer of slow decomposing materials ‘browns’ or carbon-rich products. • Each week create layers in your bin with these materials. • Don’t feed your bin with meat, dairy, fats and oils or cat and dog faeces. They will attract pests, and create strong odours when they decompose. • Water your bin weekly to speed up the decomposition process – keep it damp – not wet. • Aerate your bin weekly by turning it with a shovel or fork. This helps to speed up the decomposition and keeps strong odours at bay. • Compost will take anywhere from 3-12 months to be created, but it’s ready when it has a fine, crumbly texture. • Use compost as a soil conditioner, part of potting mix, top dressing for the lawn or as a fertiliser in your garden.

REVIEW

CURRIMUNDI REOPENS The entrance of Currimundi Lake was opened to the ocean this week in a bid to reduce midge numbers. Work included the removal of drainage pipes followed by a 20-tonne excavator digging out the sand berm. Sunshine Coast councillor Peter Cox says closing the lake previously has been deemed a success with midge larvae reduced by more than 85 per cent.

The ninth annual Caloundra Music Festival has been hailed a success with thousands of people swarming to the four-day event. About 8000 people kicked off the celebrations on opening night with Saturday selling out and Sunday pulling a 9000-strong crowd. Analysts report that the festival’s economic benefit to the community is equivalent to 75 full-time jobs and millions of dollars of new economic activity. Planning for the 2016 event will be underway shortly, with tickets predicted to go on sale before mid-year.

Each week 60 teenagers are hospitalised from alcohol related harm. This year alone, the Sunshine Coast’s emergency departments have treated 354 people with alcohol intoxication – 56 of those in teens aged 19 and under. With the figures this high there is no better time than now to spread the message about the dangers of binge drinking. People are being encouraged to get on board with Ocsober and give up the booze for the month. Visit ocsober.com.au.

PEARLER OF A DAY

More than $250,000 is predicted to have been pumped into the local economy after Mooloolaba paid host to 1800 passengers from the Pacific Pearl superliner. The welcome to visitors included a popup visitor centre at the Wharf where ambassadors provided information for passengers to help them get around the region. Up to a dozen more cruise ship visits could be on the cards for 2016.

THE DAWN OF A NEW AURA

W

ork has begun on a new city south of Caloundra which will cost $5 billion and house 50,000 people. To be called Aura – the so-called city of colour will be the largest master planned community ever undertaken in Australia under single ownership. Over the next three decades, 20,000 homes will be built on the 24-square kilometre site with the development to include a new city centre and retail hub, a Southbank style urban parkland, an elite sporting and performance precinct, two business and enterprise parks, 10 separate sporting grounds and land for 20 schools and education centres and 25 community facilities. Developer Stockland says more than 700 hectares, nearly one-third of the site, will be rehabilitated following decades of use as a former pine plantation and designated for conservation and environmental protection. Stockland will invest more than $1 billion over the first 10 years of the project, which will lead to 18,500 direct and indirect jobs over this period, with

more than 1,700 direct and indirect jobs in the first year alone. The new development will start south of Lamerough Creek near Stockland’s existing Bells Reach community, and ultimately stretch west and south to meet the Bruce Highway at the new Bell’s Creek Interchange. The project is now underway after

years of wrangling over the infrastructure agreement, which had Sunshine Coast Council fearing its residents would be hit with a $500 million bill. The council says Stockland and the state government will now foot the bill, with the developer to invest more than $1.3 billion in local infrastructure over

the life of the project, including the provision of all local roads and future upgrades of key roads, a parks and open space network and 200 kilometres of cycleways within the community. Wiebe ter Bals of the Sunshine Coast Environment Council says he fears the development will have a detrimental impact on the Pumicestone Passage. “Take me to a city of 50,000 people anywhere in the world that didn’t have an impact on the surrounding environment and I’ll believe you can do it. “They (Stockland) say they’ll have no negative impact on the environment, I just can’t see that happening, particularly when you have RAMSAR wetlands five kilometres from the site and you have massive changes to sediment and nutrient loads flowing into the creeks.”

PROFILE

FOR FOLK’S SAKE

Woodford Folk Festival founder Bill Hauritz becomes a USC Honorary Senior Fellow. WORDS: Leigh Robshaw

I

t’s the first day of October and Bill Hauritz is due a the University of at th Sunshine Coast the t receive a to p prestigious award. I Instead, he’s in bed hi Nambour N b h i cruciate i t ligament damage att his home nursing sustained while climbing Mount Everest. That’s his story anyway, and he’s sticking to it. It sounds better than the truth – he got out of bed too quickly and put himself out of action for six weeks. “It was a really simple, stupid thing,” says the head honcho of the Woodford Folk Festival, adding that a crocodile attack could be an equally plausible story. The executive director of the Queensland Folk Federation clearly has an active imagination, which has served him well as the visionary of the festival for 30 years. Now he’s being recognised for his commitment to that vision, with the university naming him an Honorary Senior Fellow for his significant and sustained contribution to the development of the Sunshine Coast. Hauritz is characteristically humble about the award. “I feel a little uneasy in the sense that I get the award but there’s been a tremendous contribution – lifetime contributions – by a number of people. It’s a team thing.

That’s what I’ll be saying when I receive the award, ultimately – that it’s on behalf of those people. It’s an award for the organisation, rather than me personally.” He’s always quick to thank others, but would the Woodford Folk Festival exist without Bill Hauritz? “Perhaps not in the beginning,” he concedes. “I did a good job right at the beginning. I went hard and put a team together and I feel good about that.” A conventional country kid who grew up on a farm in the Darling Downs and went to boarding school in Toowoomba, Hauritz never imagined he’d play such an instrumental role in creating what has become a world-renowned festival, which injects around $20 million into the Queensland economy each year. Hauritz enjoyed school, but more for the cricket and rugby than the academic side. After leaving at 16, he worked full-time as an articled clerk for a lawyer in Brisbane and through that job, was accepted into Queensland University to study law. “I actually loved the law,” he says. “I really got to understand common law and it’s been a very useful tool all my life and has helped with running the festival.” While Hauritz excelled at university, he dropped out in 1972 when he “discovered sex, drugs and rock n roll”. He’d been playing guitar since he left school, “pretending to be The Beatles and The Rolling Stones”, until he discovered traditional music in Ireland and fell in love with it.

“Every now and then I still pick up an instrument,” he says, citing mandolin as his favourite. “I make a joke that I play the same tune on at least five instruments. I don’t play as well as I used to – it’s a little embarrassing.” In a festival with 2400 performers, 25 stages and 1500 shows, Hauritz struggles to single out any performer as a highlight, but then recalls one that gives away his die-hard folkie roots: “There was a wonderful Irish musician, a fidler called Martin Hayes. It was a real privilege to see him perform.” Ticket sales are going well for this year’s event, which is a relief. “Our public funding has never been more than three per cent of our income, and in an operational sense it’s never more than one per cent of our income,” he says. “That has allowed us to build an organisation that is self-sustaining.” Even so, Hauritz says the festival is not as solid as he’d like. He wants to strengthen its environmental policies and get a stash of cash in the bank for a rainy day. “We shouldn’t take our eye off the ball. We’re not immune to a flood-ridden festival where no one turns up. We’re not as vulnerable as we used to be, but we’re still vulnerable. We need several million dollars tucked away to allow us to go through difficult times. “It definitely keeps me awake at night, but I’m not worrying about it; I’m thinking creatively about it. It’s an evolutionary process and change is constant. I think if we’re not the masters of change we’ll be its victim.”

The picturesque El Duque beach, Tenerife

View of El Golfo village on Lanzarote island

ISLANDS IN THE SUN

The Canary Islands offer year-round sunshine plus a unique mix of Spanish culture and beach culture. Words: Michael Zehender

A

place of eternal springtime is how the Canary Islands are sometimes described. The seven islands have a lot in common, especially the mild climate. But they also offer many contrasts – and many choices for the traveller. Here’s a rundown on four of the islands off western Africa’s coast. FUERTEVENTURA: The first thing many people associate with it are the endless sandy beaches. In the north there are the sand dune beaches near the main

city of Corralejo. “This is a very pretty small city with a pleasant vibe and great dining,” says Manuel Morales, in charge of Spain for the German tourism operator FTI. That is not so much the case in the south of the island, in such places as Costa Calma, Jandia and Esquinzo. There, vacationers often just stick around their hotels. Whereas the beaches of most of the other Canaries have black sand, Fuerteventura’s sand is popular for its dazzle. The longest one of the entire

Canaries is 14 kilometres long at Cofete. For Morales, Fuertenventura is the island with the most summer-like climate. Sometimes, a strong wind can be an unpleasant occurrence. But as Sven Goerrissen, of the travel operator Tui says, this also provides the best conditions for kite-surfing and wind surfing. LANZAROTE: “The somewhat different island” is how Goerrisson describes the smallest of the four main islands. Besides lava-strewn landscapes, it has many spots for swimming. But it also has something for culture-minded vacationers and those seeking more active recreation. Price levels here are somewhat higher than on the mass tourism islands.

TENERIFE: This is the largest of all the islands and so, in the view of many, the one offering the most variety. “You have everything here on one island,” says Carmen Fernandez of the Spanish Tourism Office. Basically speaking, the island is divided into two parts, north and south. The southern part is where to go for classic beach holidays. “Swimming, sunshine, beach, resort hotels and promenades, but not much else,” is how Manuel Morales describes this side of the island. In the much greener north, there are barely any sandy beaches, but many trails for hiking. Towering over the island in the middle is the volcanic mountain Teide, at 3718 metres Spain’s highest peak.

Skyline of Puerto de la Cruz with Teide volcano and fountain, Tenerife many people, the Teide alone is a reason to come to Tenerife. But besides the swimming in the south and hiking in the north, the island has much more to offer, with Goerrissen calling it an “island with the full program”. In his view, it’s the island with the most to offer, be it the exciting capital city Santa Cruz, two special recreation parks of Siam Parque and Loro Parque, and golf courses. GRAN CANARIA: Similar to Tenerife, Gran Canaria also has a north-south

division. The northern part is cooler and wetter, but as a result has much more vegetation. The south is drier, warmer and sunnier. Most vacationers clearly prefer the south because of its beaches, above all at Maspalomas. And, thanks to a large offering of vacation apartments in the south, this part is above all a favourite with families. Gran Canaria is also a place that attracts the young party-going crowds. The north is often only a place for a day-long excursion, chiefly to see the capital Las Palmas. – AAP

Cause found for her depression after 30 years on medications, weeks later she was excited, happy, motivated and amazed to get her life back A woman in her early 30’s attended the clinic having suffered symptoms of depression for most of her adult life and anxiety throughout her childhood. Suffering with symptoms of poor motivation, sadness, anxiety and insomnia, exhaustion then caused anger and irritability. She had responded to an ad about depression and was curious about learning what could be the underlying reasons, to finally address them thoroughly. After taking a full history, pathology to investigate inflammation, genetic conditions, infection, digestion, nutrients, hormone’s and brain chemical levels, it was clear what the causes were. Nothing traumatic had happened during her life to cause her condition, so it was more likely that there would be a biochemical factor involved. Having travelled extensively with her family, living in various countries through her childhood, certain bacteria in water overseas have the capacity to cause symptoms of depression, and so were investigated. We also found she was moody, with bouts of sleepiness, and fogginess throughout the day, usually indicating a relationship with food. Blood tests also confirmed two genetic conditions that did not allow her to produce brain chemicals adequately without supplementation of certain nutrients, very simple to treat, though if undetected creates further health problems. This problem alone can lower the immune system, allowing a lifetime of susceptibility to infections, and poor digestion with allergies becoming common. Food reactions cause symptoms of depression, anxiety, irritability, insomnia and low thyroid function. The liver detoxifies the offending food, by using enzymes which are also involved in making serotonin in the brain resulting in low moods. One of these enzymes is responsible for producing melatonin for sleep, so insomnia follows. The thyroid function drops during a food reaction, reducing progesterone, creating oestrogen dominance, PMS, menopausal symptoms, mood swings and more. After treatment, starting a diet tailored to her test results, raising serotonin, melatonin, and dopamine naturally, and treating her genetic conditions, she began to feel happier than she’d ever felt. Symptoms of depression affect one in four Australians. An underlying biochemical imbalance may be contributing, and can be resolved quickly.

Nature makes all the healthy stuff – make ‘real foods’ your mantra , writes Cyndi O’Meara.

I

will be speaking at a free event at Sunshine Plaza this weekend and I’m sure most people will not know me or know my message. I will be talking about getting back to real foods – getting rid of breakfast cereals, modified milks, additive laced bread, additive laden margarine and spreads, plastic cheese sandwiches, preservative based sweets and pre-prepared frozen meals. You could say my usual talk and my mantra for the last 30 years. There are usually many ‘Aha!’ moments when I talk about natural foods versus food that has been made in a laboratory. Stuff that looks like food, might smell like food, even taste like food, but isn’t food. These foods or chemicals are not what our bodies have eaten for thousands of years. I’ll tell them about my daughter Casie who at the age of seven said, “Mummy, I figured your book out; nature makes all

the healthy stuff and everything else is junk”. That wise young girl is now 24 and lives by that mantra. After my talks, I’m often swamped by people wanting to tell me their stories. The main problems I hear about are with the immune system including allergies, asthma, bowel problems, eczema, food intolerances, auto-immunity, autism and attention deficit disorders. People who haven’t heard my message before often want to know where to start – but where to begin all depends on where you are in your journey. It’s a leap of faith to trust someone who goes against the norm. But it’s okay to question the advice you are getting – take steps to educate yourself and don’t follow the crowd.

MY OPINION

STAY CLOSE TO THE TV

END OF AN ERA Sami Muirhead’s heart is hurting as she prepares to send her baby girl to big school.

I

have this tightening feeling around my heart every time I think of my eldest child starting school next year. Next year, people, is only a smidge over 80 days away. I still have not taken her to a million places I promised myself I would over the years, including Australia Zoo and fish and chips at Caloundra. I thought we had endless time to get to all those fun activities one day. Don’t get me wrong – we have had the best time together since she was born, filling our days with colouring in and making cupcakes and chattering away about glitter and rainbows and unicorns. I am still enchanted with my daughter. Do you see how I am wiping from my memory the tantrums and the constant cleaning up? But now she is off to big school. My baby girl is going to join the masses and I will pretty much say goodbye as her educator and person of influence. All those smutty words she will now hear (actually she hears a few of those from her mother from time to time) and all that independence. I know it is part of life, but I am still sad. My little girl has been the second heartbeat at my feet since she was born. Even now she flutters around me all day long like a beautiful tiny shadow from a fairytale book as she dances in her tutu and dreams the days away. I will need serious chocolate cake and serious wine when the dreaded first day of school comes. I know many

mums cannot wait for their children to start school. I’d like to keep them wrapped up in our little world forever. So to celebrate the start of a new chapter and the end of another, we are going on our first mother-daughter holiday. We are going to Rainbow Beach where we will avoid sinkholes and eat ice-cream and play in the sand every day. We will watch movies in bed and watch the sunset. The only snag is my friend told my daughter that Rainbow Beach is named after the coloured sands located near the town. So Ms Four has been telling everyone she is going to holiday at a beach with magic sand that is in fact brilliant red, orange, green, blue, indigo and violet strips of glorious colour. I had to break it to her gently that in some sections the sand is more a dull red with perhaps a few yellowy hues but overall, it is just the same as our beautiful white sand. My daughter processed this news and promptly went to the kitchen where she grabbed the cake icing food colouring drops. She looked me in the eye and said, “Don’t worry Mama, we will just pack the drops and make the sand rainbow coloured ourselves. We would actually be doing a favour for everyone.” Bless little girls and all their innocence.

For more from Sami go to twomadrabbits.com or you can hear her on Mix FM.

Nathan ‘Nugget’ Dell has a few tips on how to survive now the footy’s over.

W

ell, winter is over. The cardigans are being packed away, that smoky smell is in the air and the back of your knees are sweatier than me when I see an advertisement featuring Miranda Kerr. However, the greatest sign that the cooler months are as long gone as England’s Rugby pride and we are sailing headlong into six months of mangoes and heatstroke while searching for a car park is that the footy is over. We were treated to two magnificent champions in Hawthorn, who tossed aside a plucky West Coast Eagles side like they were a contestant on The Bachelor and the North Queensland Cowboys, whose win over the Broncos was more stressful than my last three prostate exams. But now it’s over and I’m concerned that some of you are just not prepared to handle the transition back into normal life – well, at least until the cricket starts in early November. Your first instinct may be to try to reconnect with that poor marginalised, group of outsiders you have spent the last 215 days neglecting – your family. For the love of Bert Newton, ignore this instinct at all costs. After a great season like this one, especially if your team got the choccies, there is no going back, and yeah it’s going to hurt, but it will be for the best to make a clean break. No carry-on like that girl Tom Hanks when he lost his bloody volleyball.

You may also feel an overwhelming desire to go outside. Rumour has it that there has been a whole mess of non-footy related excitement going on out there since February that you have missed. Don’t do it! There are a couple of crucial reasons why it essential you remain inside. Firstly, the only glow your Gollum-like skin has endured for the past 30 weeks has been the beautiful blue glow emitted by your flat screen. Do you think you can honestly handle the sun? A 60-watt bulb could cause you to burst into flames right now, so outside is a no-no, unless you are prepared to become full nocturnal. The other very real danger the outside world presents is the danger of falling in love with one of those genuinely crap activities that can only be done outside. Do you know what statement nobody has ever said? ‘Wow, I just came back from the best hike’. Do you know why? Because hiking is a crap outdoor activity, its just walking, but uphill. Trust me, anybody who has raved to you about their latest exciting day of orienteering is clearly unwell. Possibly due to shock from the cost of orienteering equipment. Please my fellow sports lovers, just batten down the hatches, get yourself an army disposals size drum of Cheetos and be strong. Its only 29 days until the cricket starts.

BUSINESS AND FINANCE

MANY HEALTHY RETURNS Anthony Ward is from Ord Minnett in Buderim.

R

amsay Health Care is a global hospital group operating 212 hospitals and day surgery facilities across Australia, France, the United Kingdom, Indonesia and Malaysia. It is one of the top five private hospital operators in the world. These facilities cater for a range of health care needs, from day surgery to complex surgery, as well as psychiatric care and rehabilitation. This positive outlook is predicated on the expectation that growth will be boosted by ongoing development of existing operations, more acquisitions, public-private collaborations and growth in the UK and France. Greater procurement benefits following its most recent acquisition of

Générale de Santé (GdS) in France and the potential from deals in China heighten the stock’s attraction. The company grew earnings per share in the 12 months to June 30 by 20 per cent and posted normalised profit after tax of $412 million. A final fully franked dividend of 60.5 cents per share, up 18.6 per cent on the previous corresponding period, takes the full year dividend to 101 cents fully franked, up 18.8 per cent on the prior year. Profits are expected to grow by 12–14 per cent, although management acknowledged that such guidance was potentially conservative. The underlying performance of the Australian business was masked by head office costs. At first glance, the division failed to deliver the customary earnings leverage that has been consistently underpinned by the growth in its existing facilities. However, adjusting for costs associated with the staff share plan and some regulatory provisions, Ramsay’s Australian operations delivered eight per

cent revenue growth and 11.6 per cent operating profit growth. The GdS acquisition propelled Ramsey to become Frances’s leading private hospital operator, it now purchases the same amount of medical supplies in Europe as it does in Australia. This offers a significant opportunity given the global scale and leverage that Ramsay now has with suppliers. The company will establish a global procurement business based in Singapore, which should deliver consumables costs at a level closer to those in France, which are significantly lower than in Australia. In recognition of this, we have now incorporated $100 million of procurement savings over the next three years, well above our original expectation.

f you have been in business for some time or if you are looking at becoming involved in business in any shape or form, remember that often the basics are crucial to your success. Here are some back-to-basics tips to keep you on track: 1. Develop a business plan – whether it be a one pager or a lengthy formal document, know where you are heading, what needs to be focused on and what is important to your business. Write it down so you can refer to it regularly. 2. Marketing – be consistent and look at a variety of digital and traditional options. 3. Systems – you must have systems in place to run your business and guide your people/staff. 4. Repeat/referred business – what we are all striving to attain. How do you earn the compliment of receiving repeat and referred business? Ensure your customer experience is so great that people will return and become your advocates. 5. Customer service – be the best in your field and stand out from the pack. How do you measure up?

A BEAUTIFUL BEDROOM Getting a good night’s sleep starts with choosing the right bed and then decorating your bedroom to induce a relaxed state of mind.

S

leep. We all need it and yet how many of us are getting enough? Experts advise that adults require between seven to eight hours of sleep each night. Adequate sleep is essential to health and wellbeing. Your body repairs itself as you sleep and you will also be able to function better throughout the day after a restful night. If you’re struggling to get a good night’s sleep check out these tips. You’ll be sleeping better before you know it. • Avoid caffeine, nicotine and alcohol in the late afternoon and evening. Caffeine and nicotine can delay your sleep, and alcohol may interrupt your sleep later in the night. • Exercise regularly, but do so at least three hours before bedtime. • Consider your sleep environment. Make it as pleasant, comfortable, dark, cool and quiet as you can.

• Ensure you have a supportive and comfortable bed. • Establish a regular, relaxing bedtime routine that will allow you to unwind. • If you can’t go to sleep after 30 minutes, don’t stay in bed tossing and turning. Get up and involve yourself in a relaxing activity, such as listening to soothing music or reading, until you feel sleepy.

A BETTER BED Having the right bed is key in having a successful night’s sleep. When choosing a new bed, there are a few things to keep in mind. . . • Do not be embarrassed to lie on the bed. This is a valuable investment so take your time • Start with a good quality mattress • Establish your comfort requirements – do you like a firm or soft mattress?

You need a good night’s sleep for a great day ahead. Visit Domayne this weekend and receive expert bedding advice from Matt and his experienced team. • Sealy Single Mattress from $189 • Sealy Queen Mattress from $474 • Massive 55% off Sealy King Mattress

BIG, BOLD AND BEAUTIFUL Peter Atkinson from AAP reviews the INFINITI QX80

M

eet the next big thing in SUVs. Japanese luxury brand Infiniti’s gargantuan QX80 has rumbled into town and is set to cast its very large shadow over the premium off-roader category.

Designed and built for the American market – where Infiniti does most of its business – the QX80 is a Texas-sized rival to the likes of Mercedes-Benz’s GL, Audi’s Q7 and, most particularly, the Lexus LX570. It is, in a word, vast. Deserving of its

own post code. Easily visible from space. Never has an Infiniti been more appropriately named – this car seems to extend forever in every direction. Its arrival is the first step in a major expansion of the Infiniti range, with two new small cars and a much-anticipated

sports coupe also expected in the next 12 months. Although it serves a very niche market, the QX80 will serve as Infiniti’s new Aussie flagship. Mothership, more like it. At 5.3 metres long it’s substantially longer than a long-wheelbase Holden Caprice and is also 2.3 metres wide. Perhaps most strikingly, it stands almost two metres tall. So tall, in fact, that our test machine was unable to scrape into the underground carpark of our office building. Those dimensions are both a blessing and a curse. On the positive side, it offers interior space that we’ve rarely seen in any vehicle – with up to eight adults seated in complete comfort. The third-row seating is not only quite spacious but easily accessed; thanks to a clever system whereby the middle-row seats fold then tumble forward to allow easy ingress. We took the QX80 on a family dinner excursion that saw six full-sized adults stretching out in absolute comfort – giggling at the vast amount of space this car provides. It’s not just roomy. It’s also beautifully finished, with the cabin clad in an opulent continued page 40>

<from page 38 mix of soft black leather, polished timber and chrome highlights. The downside to its dimensions are not completely disguised. It’s a massive thing to manoeuvre around tight spaces – particularly parking spots. And while its size is an issue in city traffic, we found that many fellow road users tended to offer clear passage to the big rig. The favoured high driving position of SUVs is accentuated in the Infiniti – we found ourselves peering down at “normalsized” 4WD machines and feeling as if we could drive straight over regular cars. Stand beside it and the bonnet feels about shoulder height. Despite the expanse of that massive, contoured bonnet, all-round vision from the QX-80’s plush leather perches is surprisingly good. Parking is made easier by a clever all-round view parking system that uses front, rear and side cameras to construct a birds-eye image on the display screen. That’s supplemented by a clever moving object detection system as well as a back-up collision intervention – which will apply the brakes if it suspects you’re about to hit something. A thundering 5.6-litre V8 engine ensures that the Infiniti’s substantial weight (3500 kilograms) is easily hauled

around, thanks to 298 kilowatts and 560 Newton metres of torque. But that hefty power doesn’t come cheap – you can expect consumption well into the high teens around town, although official combined thirst is 14.8 litres per 100 kilometres. On the open road that dips further thanks to the long legs of the seven-speed automatic. And with 100 litres in the tank you’ve got plenty of range. In that environment, the Infiniti is completely in its element – loping along in sublime silence as it gobbles up the miles. The engine is gloriously silky, the transmission equally so. Radar-guided cruise control makes cruising a breeze. The QX80 doesn’t so much feel like a fancy 4WD as it resembles a big limousine, such is the quality of the interior accommodation and the

smoothness and quietness of its ride. Front seats, as well as being adjustable ten different ways, are both heated and chilled. Finishes are bespoke and classy. Rear-seat passengers enjoy twin video screens with tri-zone air-conditioning piped throughout the cabin and high-end Bose audio. A system called Hydraulic Body Control keeps the vehicle balanced during corners and helps make it feel reasonably nimble for such a beast. It’s hard to believe that anyone would take this machine off road – yet the circular knob on the centre console offers settings for sand, mud and rock-climbing. Keep in mind this car shares many of its components with its corporate cousin, the Nissan Patrol – so its off-road bona fides are impressive. Cockpit layout is classy and well thought-out, with a large colour touchscreen housing satellite navigation as well as an indispensable reversing camera. With an on-road price nudging $120,000, the QX80 is very much a niche vehicle – although at that price it offers stout competition to its German rivals as well as the iconic Range Rover. You probably won’t see too many of them on Aussie roads. But you’ll certainly notice it when you do.

INFINITI QX80 HOW BIG? Seriously. But that means lashings of interior space for eight people in limo-like comfort, plus a spacious and flexible cargo capacity. HOW FAST? Surprisingly. Even though it weighs well over three tonnes, the big, brawny V8 really lifts this big machine when you ask it. Otherwise it is quiet and silky smooth when driven sedately. HOW THIRSTY? Extremely. An average consumption of 14.8L/100km is hefty enough, but you’ll be lucky to use less than 20 litres for each 100km travelled around the city. Good thing it has a massive 100 litre tank. HOW MUCH? Like its Japanese rival Lexus, Infiniti prefers all-inclusive pricing – so you get all the bells and whistles whether you want them or not. That means a driveaway price of $118,000.

TIMING IS EVERYTHING

A new report says time is running out to buy an apartment at a bargain price on the Sunshine Coast.

N

ow is the time to invest in the Sunshine Coast property market with new research suggesting that the region’s affordable price point may close. The Coast’s apartment market is significantly more affordable than those in Melbourne and Sydney but the report issued by renowned research planning and economics firm Urbis predicts that strong population and employment growth may slowly drive prices up. Urbis associate director Paul Riga says the infrastructure investment planned for the region over the coming 10-15 years will play a significant role in driving the residential property market. “What’s interesting is that while the median sale prices of residential properties on the Sunshine Coast are currently between $68,000-$290,000 less than those in Brisbane, Sydney and Melbourne, gross rental yields are actually higher on the Coast than in the capital cities,” Riga says.

“This indicates that at present, Sunshine Coast investors are paying substantially less for a higher percentage return on their investment than their counterparts who are investing in the bigger cities. “As more and more projects like the Kawana health precinct, Sunshine Coast Airport expansion and Maroochydore City Centre come out of the ground, it’s inevitable the Sunshine Coast will continue to see demand for housing, prompting both sale prices and rents to rise across the board. “Median weekly rents have already increased by three to five per cent over the 12 months to March 2015, and there are no signs of this upward trend slowing down anytime soon.” Reed Property Group development manager Josh Peacock says local developers were already seeing a surge in investment with the company’s Flame Tree Pocket selling out within one week of release. Mooloolaba’s latest high rise development First Light, also a Reed

project, has also boosted investment interest with 90 per cent of apartments sold. Pre-construction of the 67 apartment building began last week on what is the last remaining block to be developed on First Avenue. It will be built by Sunshine Coast-based company RCQ Construction. The company’s managing director Steve Cole says the project will inject more than $35 million into the economy during this phase. The project, which is expected to be completed by the end of 2016, will involve 10 full-time employees and more than 100 local contractors on site in peak periods of construction. “Of course that doesn’t include the secondary benefits to the regional economy which can be calculated based on an approximate ratio of 2:1, meaning that for every construction job created there will be at least two other jobs generated in related industries,’’ Cole says.

SURF REPORT

with MWP’s man in the water

OK, if you happened to be on a boat in North Sumatra at the moment you are in for four to seven foot swell with no wind attached! Yep, pumping waves for the next 7 days, and yes I have eight friends who refused my offer to sleep on the deck if I could come! Snap! Now for all of you lucky critters who will be on the Sunshine Coast we’ll have lovely onshore conditions to make you feel like summer is here. Yep it will be below average. On a brighter note I have some exciting news for you - but you’ll have to wait until next week. Actually I got nothing but it is nice to look forward to something.

FISHING REPORT with Wayne Nilsson from Maroochydore Fishing World

ESTUARY: Trevally are taking live baits and lures off Mooloolah rock walls and throughout the Maroochy River. You can find whiting over the yabby banks at Twin Waters and around Goat and Channel Islands feeding on the yabbies. Flathead are on the drift at the mouths of Petrie and Eudlo Creeks. There are mud crabs around the Bli Bli Islands, with sand crabs from the Twin Waters area. SURF: Sand whiting and dart are along the North Shore in the low tide gutters using beach worms. You can get bream and tailor at Pincushion using half a pilly as bait for best results. There are tailor and jew off the sand bags at the Maroochy bar. OFFSHORE: The close in reefs of Coolum, Currimundi and Caloundra are returning parrot, sweetlip and squire using squid and mullet fillet. The bottom end of the Barwon Banks are good for pearl perch, snapper and a good look at the whales as they head south. FRESHWATER: The upper reaches of Petrie and Mooloolah Rivers have nice sized bass on fly and deep divers. Borumba Dam is looking a picture with plenty of action for fly fishers and general angling with bass, saratoga and silver perch taking a wide variety of flies, baits and lures, with a special emphasis on plastics and spinner baits.

TAURUS [Apr 21-May 21] Bulls are ready to shine! Venus, Mars and Jupiter are all visiting your creativity zone which highlights self-expression, music, art, entertainment and children’s activities. Friendships are also favoured, as you find fun ways to share information with others.

GEMINI [May 22-Jun 21] Mercury connects with Saturn on Tuesday, so use your clever mind to solve a problem, tackle a puzzle or uncover a mystery. All types of education and study are also favoured. When it comes to a professional project or a domestic issue, aim to be creative rather than confused.

CANCER [Jun 22-Jul 23] Get talking with a disgruntled family member, as the new moon encourages you to see things from their perspective. It’s also a wonderful week to play domestic diva as you clean, dust, de-clutter, and tweak the feng-shui in your home.

LEO [Jul 24-Aug 23] Lions start the week feeling restless but don’t let unpredictable moods alienate you from family and friends. If you tune into the harmonious vibes of the Libran new moon, you’ll find calm cooperation will get you a lot further than feisty fireworks!

VIRGO [Aug 24-Sep 23] This week there may be some uncertainty about your personal desires and relationship responsibilities, or unexpected developments involving money (especially joint finances). Whatever happens, strive to get the balance right between giving and taking.

LIBRA [Sep 24-Oct 23] Stylish Librans have a passion for fashion (like famous fellow Libran fashionista Oscar Wilde). Monday night’s new moon is in your sign so it’s the perfect time for a hot new hairstyle, a marvellous makeup makeover or a creative wardrobe revamp. But avoid procrastinating.

SCORPIO [Oct 24-Nov 22] You’re in the mood for some soul-searching. A fresh start is likely in an important area of your life, as your intuition points you in the right direction. Friday’s fabulous Mars/Pluto trine helps you communicate with others in profound ways, as your powers are boosted.

SAGITTARIUS [Nov 23-Dec 21] Is your peer group too limited? The new moon encourages you to extend your network of local friends and international contacts. Then Mercury links up with Saturn (in your sign) which steadies your mind, boosts concentration and sharpens your eye for hidden details.

CAPRICORN [Dec 22-Jan 20] Are there too many chiefs and not enough Indians in your world? Cooperation and compromise are the keys to interacting with others. And are you getting the results you want at work? If not, then some adjustments are needed, as the moon activates your career zone.

AQUARIUS [Jan 21-Feb 19] Your education/adventure zone is stimulated by the new moon so expect a new cycle of study, travel or outdoor adventures over the next few months. The focus is firmly on financial matters on the weekend. Don’t put your head in the sand Aquarius!

PISCES [Feb 20-Mar 20] The new moon lights up your lust and loot zone, so some fish can look forward to a new romance – or a revitalised old one. This week there’s a fine line between creative inspiration and wishful thinking. Daydreaming about projects won’t get the job done!

ARIES [Mar 21-Apr 20] Monday’s sun/Uranus opposition ignites your dare-devil side but slow down, or you’ll come a cropper! Aries are fiercely independent but sometimes (when there’s a new moon) it’s good to ask for help, as it gives others the opportunity to show they care.

THE LAST WORD

LIVING BY THE BOOK The Encyclopaedia Brittanica was akin to Google back in the olden days, writes Richard Oâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;Leary.

T

he day will come, and it may well be soon, that I have to tell my children â&#x20AC;&#x201C; I was born before Google existed. They will look up at me with bewildered eyes trying to take in the incomprehensible, their faces unable to mask their feelings of pity, concern and contempt. I know that look. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the same expression I wore when I discovered my parents were born before television came to Australia. Once my children have gathered themselves to end the stunned silence the questions will start. â&#x20AC;&#x153;But how did you find out stuff?â&#x20AC;? they say. At this point I should clarify. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m from the school of thought that if you donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know something you fess up to it rather than try and bluff your way through it (stop laughing all of you who know me â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m talking about my life as a parent. No seriously stop

it â&#x20AC;&#x201C; just read on). It ends a longstanding tradition in our family which has caused generations of confused children. If I canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t answer one of my kidsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; questions, more often than not I will sit down with them and Google the answer. Last week my youngest asked how wire is made. I had no idea, which seems increasingly to be the case these days. I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know if this is because Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve started forgetting things, or I just didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know much in the first place. A minute or so later we were watching a YouTube video which showed how they turn thick strands of copper or aluminium into thin wires â&#x20AC;&#x201C; it involves a lot of stretching. Back to the conversation with my kids in the not too distant future and I tell them I used to look up stuff in the encyclopaedia. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s an encyclopaedia?â&#x20AC;?

â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m glad you asked,â&#x20AC;? I will say. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s when I will take them out to the spare room and show them the copies of the Encyclopaedia Britannica which were recently delivered by my parents from the family home. There was a bit of scepticism from some quarters in my household about why we would want two boxes of books which are not only outdated but would require the purchase of another book shelf â&#x20AC;&#x201C; to add to the three more we already need. But I stood my ground, and when that question is asked about encyclopaedias, I will be prepared. I will be leather-bound, see-through thin paper, hardly-used prepared. And so what if they give me that look, shrug their shoulders and suggest I could have just Googled it? roleary@myweeklypreview.com.au.
